When it comes to architectural styles, Barcelona is unique, says architect and designer Jorge Valdes
Barcelona, Spain — — It’s the perfect city to live in, according to architect Jorge Valdés.
“Barcelona is a city of the future,” he told CNN.
“It has been a major European city since the 19th century and is a symbol of the city of tomorrow.”
Valdés, who is based in Barcelona and has been designing the city for 20 years, was recently awarded the title of “Design Architect” at the European Architecture Congress, an annual event that is held annually in Brussels, Belgium.
His project was called “Barquisimiento de Barcelona,” or “City of Tomorrow.”
Vidal said he wanted to take advantage of the modern architectural design that Barcelona is known for, and he chose the Barquisimo building in the city’s old center, the Biblioteca de la Historia de Barcelona, for his design.
He also wanted to make a statement by using the classic architectural elements of the time, like the Gothic style, which was a form of architectural design popularized by Spanish architect Juan Pablo Picasso in the late 1800s.
The building is designed to be open and open to the public.
Valdés said that while the building is very modern, it is still very much a Barquísimo building.
The design includes an open plan and no facade.
“In the past, it was a very conservative style, so I wanted to be able to show that we are not afraid of architecture, that we do not think it is too much, but that it is not necessarily that we don’t like it, but it is that it needs to be modern,” he said.
“If you don’t have this idea that you are not a Barquerón, you don`t have this opportunity to really show that.”
The architects design the structure in two phases, one is a formal design phase, the other is a conceptual design phase.
The architects then take a closer look at the design and make changes as needed.
“At the end of the conceptual design, we will see the final outcome,” Valdés explained.
“We have a great amount of feedback from the public and we want to show the public that they are not alone in this project.”
Valde said he believes Barcelona has become a modern city because of the new technologies.
“The modernity of this city is a result of the use of modern technologies, which means that Barcelona now is a unique city, in that we have the highest density of people, but also the highest number of buildings,” he added.
Valdes said the concept of Barquizimientos de Barcelona is also about the design of architecture.
“To me, the modernist architecture is about creating new ways to see the city and create a city that reflects its people,” he explained.
The Barcelona City Hall is located on the site of the BIC Barquímiento building.
The City Hall will be used for public events, including concerts, exhibitions, meetings, and public art events.
